2. Draft Malik Nabers in the first round

Ever since trading away Odell Beckham Jr. back in 2019, the Giants have consistently failed to find a true WR1 through the draft and free agency. However, with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Schoen has the chance to finally deliver the Giants the offensive threat they've been so desperately needing.

Malik Nabers may not be the best receiver prospect in this draft class, but he's easily second behind Marvin Harrison Jr. and could be available at No. 6 overall. Whether it be his elite top speed, abilities as a deep threat, or incredible hands, Nabers does it all and is the caliber of receiver that could change things for the Giants.

In his final season at LSU, Nabers caught 89 passes for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns. These stats and traits earned Nabers' reputation as a star in the making that any team would be happy to have on their offense.

If Schoen can manage to land Nabers with the No. 6 overall pick, it could revolutionize the team's offense. The Giants haven't seen a receiver prospect like this since Beckham and it's really no coincidence that they both went to the same college.
